FOOD PANTRY MONTH
In working with the Coshocton Salvation Army, our church has agreed to help provide food in the months of December and March. These donations will be utilized here in Coshocton County. At present, our school district has approximately 50% on free lunches, but what happens when they return home? Some suggestions from the Food Pantry: canned, pre-cooked items to open and heat, canned fruit, Spaghettios, canned vegetables, soups, ravioli, etc. Also, boxed convenience foods, such as macaroni & cheese, canned meats, peanut butter, jelly, crackers, and taxable items such as diapers, formula, shampoos, etc. No dented or outdated cans! Blankets are needed in the winter months. Monetary donations are needed, also.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS BOXES
UMC and the Outreach Committee would like to thank everyone who helped with the Christmas Shoe Boxes and the shipping cost. We delivered 94 boxes to Grace UMC, Coshocton on November 15 to be trucked to Boone, NC. Thank you to Nate McNeal for delivering the boxes. A SPECIAL BIG THANK YOU to Jean Mercer for her time and work she put into this project.

ORGAN FUND
THANK YOU to all who contributed to the ORGAN FUND. We hit our goal and have extra for tuning and upkeep. You may still contribute to this fund as we always need money for tuning. THANK YOU AGAIN!!!

EPIPHANY OPEN HOUSE
Wrap up the Christmas Season with an Epiphany Open House at the parsonage January 7, 3:00 - 5:00 PM. Cookies and beverage will be provided.

BOOK CLUB
